McKenny Hall Venues


McKenny Hall, previously called McKenny Union, was the first student union on the campus when it opened in 1931. This historic building has recently been renovated and offers a great historical feel. The spacious Ballroom is the gem of the building and can currently host a meeting up to 225 and a served dinner for 150 guests.

Because Your Event is Our Priority, we offer:

  • Personalized event planning and catering services
  • Full-service catering menu available for breakfast, lunch, cocktail receptions and dinner
  • Certified-Executive Chef with 20 years of professional experience in the hotel industry
  • A meeting site that is easily accessible from Ann Arbor, Detroit and Toledo
  • Competitive pricing that is hard to beat in Southeastern Michigan

This is a great venue for hosting Faculty and Staff or Student meetings on campus. There are four meeting spaces on the second floor that can seat from 20 - 40 guests. Currently there is no Audio Visual equipment or onsite staffing at McKenny Hall. The University is continuing to invest and we hope to be able to offer this service onsite soon.

For your groups convenience there is an Eagle Cafe offering fresh coffee, beverages, and a variety of meal and snack options for your guests. The cafe is located near a large comfortable lounge to use for break areas or just to sit and relax while catching up with friends

If you are interested in reserving space at McKenny, you can contact us by using the Reservation Form, or by calling the Event Planning Office at 734-487-4108.
